Hi I applied for pip on the 2nd feb 22 I had assessment after my support worker called anyway on Monday I recevied off a number I didn’t recognise anyway I googled it and was dwp so called them and spoke to a lady who said said I’ve been awarded pip but they wanted to know if they could put the money into my bank I said yeah but I’d have to inform my support worker and socail worker. Has anyone had similar experience ?

    Hello @jehckdllabsg123

    Welcome to the community, I hope you are well and it's nice to see you join us. 

    Thank you for telling us about your experience, it's positive that you have received an award. Have you been in touch with your support worker about the call?

     

    I hope to see you getting involved more around the community. This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.
